USHA RULES & REGULATIONS 
A Sanctioned Event is a USHA-approved and scheduled competition in which USHA members
and non-members compete in accordance with the USHA Rules and Directives of June 2015.
A Selection Match is a single race within that event. Typically, there are two such matches per Sanctioned Event (one Saturday, one Sunday). A shooter must compete in five (5) Selection

Matches in order to achieve eligibility / ranked status. Only USHA members in good standing
shall see their scores count towards team standings.

*Any scores posted prior to activation of membership IN THE NEW YEAR— or renewal of a
lapsed membership for the next year, — are invalid and will remain so for the duration of
the season.. Please pay your dues BEFORE Jan 2018 or at least before the 1st 2018 shoot! 

Event Weight Factor (EWF)


A Selection Match's EWF is based upon the number of USHA member-competitors participating

in that particular match. The same EWF shall be applied to all shooters, regardless of category,
for a given match. The EWF matrix is as follows:​​
Qualifying Points (QP)

A shooter's QP is equal to his/her finishing place relative to all USHA member-competitors at a particular Selection Match, regardless of category...
QP = finishing place, but in points
(1st Place = 1pt, 2nd Place = 2pts, 6th Place = 6pts, etc.)

Match Points (MP)

MPs are the product of a shooter's Qualifying Points and the Event Weight Factor...
MP = QP x EWF


Total Match Points (TMP)


TMPs are simply the sum of a shooter's lowest five (5) Match Points earned throughout the

season...
TMP = Sum of Lowest 5 MPs


How the Ranking Process Works


The USHA will rank all of its members from top to bottom using the Team Match Point system.

This method will generate the Open Class rankings. From these rankings, the USHA will then
sub-rank the Women, Junior, and Veteran classes.

USHA Team Standings

Association members participating in sanctioned events (subject to the team selection process outlined here) will accumulate points toward earning a berth on the USHA National Team. The USHA shall publish these rankings, known as USHA Team Standings, on behalf of the membership and do so organized into the above-mentioned classes.
NOTE: USHA national team qualification policy states that points earned toward a national team berth are only awarded to USHA members in good standing.
The USHA Board of Directors reserves the right to modify the above process as required in order

to settle ties or resolve other unforeseen circumstances.

Team Selection Process


Based upon the Team Standings, the USHA shall annually select for its national team the top

five (5) Men, Women, Junior and Veteran competitors. Each team will be composed of three
(3) primary and two (2) alternate team members.
NOTE: The USHA shall subsidize only the primary team members for the Men, Women, and

Junior teams.

Declining a Team Berth

In the event that a primary or alternate shooter declines his/her berth, the USHA will offer
the next shooter in line said berth until the pre-determined number of team members is established for a given team/category.

Funding and Entitlements


The funded teams shall be awarded the following USHA-sponsored entitlements;
        1. Recognition as a member of the US Helice Team
        2. Reimbursement for a US Helice Team blazer jacket
        3. Receipt of a personalized US Helice Team shooting vest
        4. Travel subsidies in the amount of $1,000 US

Programs

In order for the Qualifying Match to be sanctioned by USHA, the event must be conducted per established USHA rules and regulations and receive USHA approval prior to event advertising/publication. This includes shooting from a common distance, common ring size and common target speed/setting (allowing for weather conditions). USHA referees must preside. All USHA decisions regarding event eligibility shall be final.

NOTE: USHA RESERVES THE RIGHT TO MODIFY/REVISE THIS SELECTION PROCESS FOR JUST CAUSE
AS DEEMED APPROPIATE BY USHA.
